Ooyala-hosted Player V4 Resources
Was this article helpful?
Ooyala Resource PathsThe Ooyala Player is hosted, distributed, and maintained on URL paths. These paths are automatically updated with new Player V4 releases and are subject to our 99.9% uptime SLA.
productionThe following path is recommended for most Ooyala customers:
production/latestThe following path contains the latest Ooyala player version that has been certified for release.
Static Ooyala-Hosted Player PathsThe Ooyala player is also hosted on static paths.
stable/latestThe following path is required for mixed-content conditions:
//player.ooyala.com/static/v4/stable/latest/This path is set indefinitely to Player V4 Web v4.10.6, which is last player version that does not cause browsers to enforce mixed content rules with Flash playback. Example: //player.ooyala.com/static/v4/stable/latest/core.js
stable/versionThe Ooyala Video Player is also hosted on version-specific paths (stable/#.#.#) for each player release (refer to the Ooyala Player V4 Release Notes for details). Using the static player paths is not recommended, as you will miss getting important player software updates automatically. If you point to specific player versions, you will be entirely responsible for manually updating player resources to newer versions. Example: //player.ooyala.com/static/v4/stable/4.13.4/core.min.js
List of Player V4 ResourcesAt a minimum, you must load the Core Player and at least one video plugin for Player V4 to function properly. If you do not load at least one video plugin, your player will not play videos.
